plan for seismic safety. it is a plan we wanted to make sure that was lead by someone who can immediately get on the ground and figure out all of the things that we need to do to make sure the soft story buildings which are the most important focus that we have to have for the next seismic event and starts with that planning with all of us, so i wanted to make sure to introduce and congratulate patrick otiline who has come aboard to take care of this incredible responsibility. patrick, thank you very much for being here today. [applause] i will note that currently the caps program is lodged under city mmptdor's office and a conversation i had when i was city administrator and we wanted to put it at a place, but it is there for now, but with patrick's help we will make sure that program flourishes at the right place and with all the different resources that we have to have along with my commitment we will have appropriate legislation in due time when we are ready when placed out before the voters what we require but we will do that in collaboration and not talking out because

to the tower's structure. and in a building this tall, it is very interesting, obviously seismic design is critical but at this height of 1070, it is really wind that one has to design for primarily over seismic, if you design for wind, appropriately you have designed to seismic. that is the key to the very robust central core that has a concrete box surrounding it. you see the three exit stairs and you see the great number of elevator and this happens to be one of the lowest floors and that is the low, rise, elevator core that is colored in. this is the mid point of the tower and this is about a 20,000 foot square plate and then the top plate of the tower, 18,500 square feet. at the middle part of the tower's exterior, there is also still the middle, shading that is surrounds the entire building access of sun shade and access of architectural defining advice giving the building a great deal of texture. it is anticipated to be painted in a very beautiful, white, metal metallic color that has a resonance and glow in the sunlight and also even in doctored conditions will feel rather light

. they are seismically safe. they are going to have the most modern equipment for our kids to grow up and promise all of the things that we promised for them to do to become even better residents. the things that keeps me going and everybody else goes in collaboration, we're doing it for you. it's not about us. it's not about announcements, about things that are politically smart for us to do. it's about the future of this city. and with these 24 branches, and now the smart thing to do, connect up with great parks. yes. [ applause ] because the vision, julie didn't have a vision of just having a great center library; right? our neighborhoods aren't just going to accept that to be the end. it's to connect it up with world-class parks. that is what prop b is about and why we work together and mohammed comes in and smooths out columbus avenue. because i just road that street and it feels like a construction road [ laughter ] we have got to get all of these roads built and this is what scott wiener and others works on:we have the opportunity to unite everybody and it's up to us in government to have l

of the three projects that still remain in design at this point are seismic reliability projects. the good news here is that all seismic reliability projects are either in construction or have been completed. so the large changes on the calaveras replacement project are reflengd here in the regional program variances reported for this quarter. we -- if we focus on the numbers for the regional program, you'll see that we are now forecasting the cost of regional projects to be 150.6 million more than the total budget approved for these projects and this will present an increase of 138.7 million over the forecast for the last quarterly. nearly the the entire increase in the cost forecast is associated with the calaveras project. that project is now forecasted complete 25 months beyond the approved completion date for the program which is july 2016. however, to minimize costs what we're planning on doing is to discontinue all program level resources as planned mid-july 2016, unless the implementation of the calaveras project move on on its own, using its own resources. >> i'm sorry, i department qu

and this seismic rebuild as we are. because they have the opportunity to serve even more clientele for our communities. i want to personally thank our superviors. david shew. the district supervisor here as well as eric marr because they understood when we talked to the hospital and the board of trustees, how we needed to really fast-track this to the board and get these approvals on. because seismic upgrades, it is all about beating the event. it is all about building this hospital before the events come, and there will be some forced effort to... that might cause us even more damage and more threat to our own health. now i want to thank brenda and her leadership at the hospital because she has been steadfast in making sure that she has got a team that delivers on both the economics of it and working with james and the board of trustees to make sure that they have experts on the design and the engineering of this, to make sure that the footprint can accommodate the build-out. and we have had to have very good conversations with the planning department to get this to as well. so the whole

to be able to meet the current seismic code with those foundations because you cannot put anchor bolts into the foundation that wand the bolt that we are retired to have now and i would like to persistent out the drawings that mr. williams was showing included interior partition and is that is clearly not part of the san francisco planning department criteria for demolition it has do with interior walls and the vertical surfaces. so ... the other thing that were the to point out is that there is also not really a way to meet both the energy code, the lateral code and the fire code for walls without removing the at least the interior claddings and sometimes the ex-tierior cladding. so i hope that helps a bid. >> air force couple of questions and first the stated date of this home being built was 1879 and now admittedly looking at the outside somebody did some things because everything was wood frame and mow it looks stucco and so would i would assume there were alterations over the years first of all, i'm mr. washington. >> sorry, this house is had under gone construction but had
